A complete gongfu tea set with a hand painted chicken theme, inspired by the original Chenghua emperor's 'chicken cup'. The set consists of a teapot (150ml), a pitcher with filter, and 6 cups. All pieces are made from high quality porcelain and are beautifully translucent.


The delicate and intricate design on this tea set is what makes it so special. One can see a rooster and a hen as the main subject within a garden landscape, surrounded by chicks, flowers and trees. The whole scene is painted in vibrant and vivid colors, exuding a sense of elegance and beauty.

Historical Background of the Chicken Cup

This tea set is inspired by the original Chenghua Chicken Cup, which is a porcelain artifact from the Ming Dynasty. The cup was created during the reign of Emperor Chenghua, who ruled from 1464 to 1487. According to experts, the Chenghua Chicken Cup is a symbol of prosperity, good luck, and fertility. The cup's depiction of the rooster and hen symbolizes a harmonious relationship and blessings of numerous children, something highly valued in Chinese culture. In 2014, during a Sotheby's auction, a chicken cup was sold to Chinese billionair Liu Yiqian for 36 million USD.
